Something’s not right

Speaking too soon...

I had a whole different thread planned, but I had a pretty serious disappointment.

 

My manager messaged me a couple of days ago, saying that I have been approved to transfer to a different store. Apparently all your leave and everything carries over, they just need me to sign a new contract.

 

However, today, she said that there has been some sort of miscommunication, and that "it won't be going ahead at this stage". I'll have to do my hours this week at my old store, where I nearly died. 

 

Communication has been an issue with this new store's management.

 

A few times I have been there, the team was surprised to see me, as if no-one told them that I was going to be coming in.

 

Last night, I felt really weak and faint, so I had to leave. No-one knew what to do if you were sick in the middle of a shift. There's no way you can get a medical certificate, because they can't be backdated. So they just asked me to call the store manager later today.

 

One of the guys told me that he went away for a few weeks, and when he came back there was a bunch of new staff, so there's a bit of a history of disorganisation there.

 

All I know is, I can't go back there.

 

In that regard, it's kind of a non-issue, because I can apply for annual leave. Just anything to mean that I don't have to go back there. The problem is, I don't know whether my manager is expecting me to go out there.

 

It's so frustrating, though, because I thought it was settled. I started getting comfortable, and I met some people I looked forward to seeing again, and now I have to re-adjust.

 

I have enough to adjust to. My suicidal thoughts have come back to an extent, and my social anxiety has gotten worse recently.

 

I don't know whether I'll get paid for the time I lost last night. I don't know whether I can get leave, and whether my family will understand. I hope so, but really, I'm just hoping to be in one piece when everything is resolved...
